How many sentences are there in one paragraph?
For ebook and blog readers, not too many, thank you very much.
Short is the preference for today’s readers.
Attention span is the key to online reading, whether it is a blog post or a Kindle ebook. Screen reading has changed the way readers understand and absorb a text.
A good piece of writing for online and screen readers can be gauged by the number of sentences you link together in one paragraph.
If you still think that ten sentences in a paragraph works, think again. Today’s readers love paragraphs that are short and sweet.
